    Provitamin A; beta-carotene

    Endogenous Metabolite ROS Apoptosis Cancer Metabolic Disease
    β-Carotene (Provitamin A), a carotenoid compound, is a naturally-occurring vitamin A precursor. β-Carotene is a modulator of reactive oxygen species (ROS), with antioxidant and antiinflammatory activities. β-Carotene may serve as an antioxidant or as a prooxidant, depending on its intrinsic properties as well as on the redox potential of the biological environment in which it acts. β-Carotene induces breast cancer cells apoptosis, with anticancer activities.
  • HY-136234

    Others Others
    9-cis-β-Carotene, a precursor of retinal, is cleaved by beta-carotene oxygenase 1 (BCMO1) to produce 9-cis-retinal. 9-cis-β-Carotene inhibits photoreceptor degeneration and restores retinal function in vivo. 9-cis-β-Carotene has the potential for the study of congenital stationary night blindness and fundus albipunctatus.
  • HY-113462

    Others Cancer
    α-Carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, is used as an anti-metastatic agent or as an adjuvant for anti-cancer drugs. α-Carotene is isolated from yellow-orange and dark-green vegetables.
  • HY-W041301

    Others Others
    (±)-Dihydroactinidiolide, an important aroma compound of black tea and tobacco, has been isolated from several plants. (±)-Dihydroactinidiolide can be formation from β-Carotene by the treatment of polyphenoloxidase, the lipoxygenase, and the xanthine oxidase.
  • HY-W010231

    Others Others
    β-Cyclocitral, a volatile oxidized derivative of β-carotene, is a grazer defence signal unique to the Cyanobacterium Microcystis. β-Cyclocitral, one of the predominant volatile terpenoid compounds, can upregulate the expression of defence genes to enhance excess light (EL) acclimation. β-Cyclocitral is a powerful repellent.
  • HY-W009310

    Endogenous Metabolite Others
    9-cis-Retinal is a natural retinoid. Dietary 9-cis-β-carotene generates 9-cis-retinoids via cleavage into 9-cis-retinal. 9-cis Retinal binds to cellular retinol-binding protein-I (CRBP-I) and CRBP-II with Kds of 8 nM and 5 nM, respectively. 9-cis-Retinal expedites differentiation and maturation of rod photoreceptors in retinal organoids.
